National Archives of Canada maps were acquired by Chrysal Kennedy in 2003, who requested photocopies of the original maps held by the National Archives.
The Halifax Regional Municipality map was given to Thea Wilson-Hammond by a Halifax Regional Municipality employee.
The Tangier Lumber & Halifax Co. map was donated to the Eastern Shore Archives by the Cumberland County Museum and Archives in 2012.
The J.F.W DesBarres maps, Crown Land Maps, E. R. Fairbault, and A. F. Church maps were donated by the Lake Charlotte Area Heritage Society.
The remainder of the maps were given to the Eastern Shore Archives by unknown donors.
Scope and content
The Eastern Shore Archives has collected a variety of cartographic materials produced by a number of different cartographers, government departments, and businesses. These materials were accumulated over time by the archives from various sources as opposed to being generated by a single creator.
Collection consists primarily of maps of Nova Scotia and various areas along Nova Scotia’s Eastern shore. They vary from nautical maps to topographical maps, to land grant and Crown Land maps, to geological surveys. Some include illustrations, descriptions, and directories.
